This week we are going to work on two moves - floor side leg curl and squats - to strengthen our legs. For every move, try to do four sets of 10. Remember to warm up before working out

Squats

Stand up straight, feet slightly farther apart than hips, and toes slightly turned out. Hold your hands to your head, with elbows out, to balance

Bend your knees and lower yourself as far as you can without lifting your heels off the floor. Pause for a second at the bottom, then push back up to starting position

Floor side leg curl

Lie down with arms at your sides and legs straight out on the floor. Place a towel underneath both heels

Lift your hips off the ground and slide your heels towards your body. Slowly slide and straighten your legs back to starting position, keeping your hips off the ground at all times.
